Genteng House / SASO Architecture Studio

October 20, 2019 Daniel Tapia 0

This 70 m² house is located in Bekasi, West Java, about 40 minutes drive from Halim Perdanakusuma Airport, Jakarta. Surrounded by high-density houses with 6-meter wide street at the east & south of the site. The basic thinking behind Genteng House is as simple as the love for mother nature. Genteng House stands on the site where an old house stood for years. The old house was abandoned, for most of its materials were badly broken, a slight renovation couldn’t simply help. No matter how bad, we couldn’t help but thinking that it is impossible for us to donate such amount of waste to our mother earth.

The new garden pavilion completes the historic renovation of a small villa built in the early 1900’s by the famous Swiss architect Hans Bernoulli (1876-1953). The villa originally contained two small apartments, with few tiny rooms, and was built with simple materials. In order to meet today’s demands of a family of four, the small villa was converted into a residential house and complemented by an extension of a garden and music pavilion.

Dept W Store / BuckleyGrayYeoman

BuckleyGrayYeoman has been involved with design proposals for the former Wickhams department store since 2012. Aware that that this city-fringe neighbourhood would attract renewed interest with the opening of the Elizabeth Line station at Whitechapel, our client (Schroders Real Estate) sought to restore the Wickham’s building to its former grandeur, reworking the space to suit a mixture of uses including offices on the upper floors and retail facilities at street level. We were asked to carry out an extensive refurbishment of the building to create a high-quality and refined office space that was sympathetic to the building’s heritage.

A 45-year-old  house sandwiched between a park and a farm was renovated as an office and residence. Park and farm / Office and residence / existing and renovation  were treated as equally as possible, and we were conscious of designing a residence as a “stage of the story of life”.
